Hello,

At first I thought it was a tired Arch Manjaro install that was perhaps the issue. Now that I've done fresh installs of Arch (Manjaro & Arco), Ubuntu (KDE, Gnome, & XFCE) on both my workstation and laptop, I can say it's not my Hardware or OS. So why is Firefox crashing all the time? Mid chat conversations, etc. Again, fresh OS install and zero Add-Ons installed. I can't use Firefox, even if I badly wanted too when it tanks on me all the time.

I have been using Firefox for a number of years.

I primarily use a Sony Vaio PC using Windows 7.

I got an automatic update of Firefox Version 90.0.2 on 7/22/2021.

It is not working very well. Opening new tabs are hard. Will not close tabs very well, leaving unused space on top. Different sites show up on another sites tab. Worst of all, this new version is a memory hog, with me eventually having to reboot the PC to clear memory until the next time.

Can you please help?

Thanks in advance,

Joe Lisak

I updated Firefox yesterday and since then everything in Firefox is blurry, except for some drop down menu's for some reason. Everything else is... I use two 4k 60hz monitors. On both of these they are blurry. It also seems like everything moves up and down a pixel when giving input (like keyboard or mouse inputs). I added an image of the blurriness. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Note: This is the only software experiencing this problem.

Best regards

Problem with printing at reduced scale, did not notice it before a few days ago so could have been after a recent update. Am now using Firefox 90.0 for Linux Mint 19.3. Printing to US Letter size (which had been broken with "na_letter" being stuffed in to the config at one point, but I switched it back to "US Letter" and then it started working again a few months ago - Thank you).

I see some similar questions listed, so this may be simply adding information to something known:

Printing with "Fit to page fit" works fine, with correct preview. Print with scale set to 100% works fine, with correct preview.

Printing with scale set to less than 100% (say 70% or 80%) showed in the preview the page rescaled as expected. The actual printed output is also rescaled as expected, but the page size gets cropped at the right and bottom by what appears to be the same percentage, ending up with lost content. The bit that does print seems to match what is shown in the print preview perfectly, suggesting it would have been totally perfect if the print area had not been cropped along with reducing the text and image sizes.

I tried the "Print using the system dialogue" option, and the printed result had the same pathology.

Same problem also happens when I print to PDF. For this I tried doing the same thing twice, both scaled at 70%, and on comparing found that the preview in firefox had also become cropped a bit but not to the same extent. I did not notice any cropping for the first print to PDF, but now seem unable to get back to what I saw originally in the preview, with correct resizing and no cropping. Playing around some more with printing at 100% vs 70% vs 80% to "fit to page width", I seem to be getting changing crops happening each time in the preview for the reduced sizes.

But the preview and print are both still correct for 100% scaling and for "fit to page width".

Sample web page I used here was https://getpocket.com/explore/item/a-shoulder-workout-for-better-posture?utm_source=pocket-newtab The screen shot shows the preview after the first reduced print to PDF, with no settings changed. The little bit of side cropping seen in the preview did not happen when I did the first print to PDF.

My Firefox browser is constantly showing 1 GB of disk space used. I've set up automatic clear of site data and cookies. I'm constantly having to clear all data and then sign in to all my usual websites all over again. I'm not able to get onto my banking websites most likely due to this data clog. I'm SO TOTALLY tired of this constant cycle of trying to clear my data and accessing my usual websites. I'm using Firefox for many years without this trouble. I'm one week away from changing browsers. If I go to Safari I am not finding this trouble. Chrome is my next choice. I use my Mac computer for personal use only and my firefox is up to date. I'm using Big Sur on my macbook pro. What is going on?? Without a solution I'm out of here.

We have a page that showes total work times of employees on a timeline which holds data for one year. This totals in 106219 nodes on that page. Previous versions of FireFox did not had issues with this, other browsers (Opera, Chrome, Edge) have also no issues and render the page in about 2 - 3 seconds. Not so Version 90.0.2 (32 bit). It now takes 4 minutes to render this page completely. Trying to debug this is impossible cause during rendering the browser is not responsive at all. Is this a bug that sneaked in or what can we do? This happens on fresh installs of Windows 10 with fresh installs of FireFox, that said it's not something that could be reset or cleaned etc. Any Ideas as to why FireFox struggles now with above mentioned number of nodes as oposed to earlier versions?

For about a month now I have had an issue with Firefox where suddenly the search bar (with Google search) stops working. I input text, press enter but nothing happens. No page is loaded. I see the google search URL that the browser is trying to reach, and I see in the network tool that the request is made but nothing appears after that. Page doesn't change and response is not registered in the network tool. Also, my GMail account tabs stop working, and trying to refresh them, GMail freezes while loading.

If I restart Firefox all starts working, until the problem starts happening again (can be minutes or hours, I guess it depends on usage)

Another colleague of mine has the exact same problem.

I tried with NO success: - Clearing all cache and data; - Disabling all extensions; - Running firefox in troubleshoot mode; - Refresh Firefox; - Complete uninstall, with profile folder removal and start from scratch; - Disabling hardware acceleration; - Setting "browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar" to false; - Disabling "network.http.http3.enabled"; - Setting Proxy to "No Proxy";

All works on another browsers.

Can someone advise on how to further troubleshoot and fix this issue?

Since I upgraded to Firefox 90.0, my RSS feeds can not longer be refreshed in my feed reader. I get a 403 error ("access denied"). When I check the debug information on the URL, it says:

Content Security Policy: The page’s settings blocked the loading of a resource at inline (“script-src”).

I am using Feedbro on Firefox 90 on Ubuntu 20.04 on two different computers, and getting same problem.

Clearing the cache, trying other feed readers, deleting cookies etc do not help.

A sample feed URL: https://news.google.com/rss/search?hl=en-US&gl=US&q=mozilla&ceid=US:en In Firefox, I can open a tab and see the text file. But Feedbro, or any other reader, cannot detect the feeds on this page any more.

Any advice? I absolutely rely on RSS feeds for my work.

Thank you kindly!

When I launch Firefox, if I press anything or wait for a bit, the program stops responding and I have to force close it. Firefox was working just fine until recently. I have not updated Windows or made changes to Firefox prior to these issues occurring either.

I have tried following this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-keeps-crashing-startup#w_try-a-clean-install_2

I am not able to start in Troubleshoot mode as I cannot interact with Firefox in any way.

I also have trouble with doing a clean install. When I run the uninstaller, it eventually gets stuck and I have to force close the uninstaller. After closing the uninstaller, I deleted the Mozilla folder under C:\Program Files and the Firefox folder under the %appdata% directory.

I then tried both the stub installer for Firefox and the full installer located here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-CA/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

Both installers get stuck. I have attached an image of where the full installer gets stuck. After force closing the installers, I am still able to open Firefox, but it has the same issue of not responding.

I have also tried creating a new profile with the profile manager, but the issue persists.

If anyone has any ideas or knows of a solution, please let me know.

Thanks.

When I am in an open page in Firefox 90.02 and try to open a link MOST OF THE TIME It will post the error message below and not let me proceed. I can tell from other posts that this is not uncommon, but I cannot find a posting that is useful.

Thus far I have 1. reset/repaired Firefox 2. ensured that Firefox has full access to my computer and the internet and that the Firewall is off. 3. reset all the security and privacy settings to the lowest settings or turned them off including pop-up blocking, tracking, really all settings, cleared the cookies and caches.

Several websites I use frequently, including Facebook, the Macquarie Dictionary and even Mozilla's own support website, don't work properly with the new version of Firefox. I even had to use Google Chrome to access this support page, as I couldn't get past the login page using Firefox. When I first opened the new version, Firefox told me that I had to enable cookies for it to work. I went to Preferences and checked that cookies were definitely enabled. I quit and restarted both Firefox and the entire computer, checked that cookies were still enabled and it still doesn't work. Why is this happening? I don't want to change my default browser permanently, but I need it to work for me. Can anyone help?

I am getting more & more frustrated and exasperated, as simple browsing has become tortuously slow, with many sites taking forever to load, or only partially load, or have to be refreshed a couple times, to finally get it to load. And videos constantly freezing up, despite lots of free RAM, and a very high-speed internet connection. I assumed whatever was causing this would've been addressed in the last update, or two, but no, it's only getting worse.

(I'm using a desktop with Windows 10 without the recent disservice pack update.)

This issue is a recent development, even newer than the weird sans serif font issue that began with Firefox 90. The issue is intermittent.

When I scroll down a page using the wheel on my Logitech M510, parts of the page will refresh at different speeds. Usually this is noticeable as the illusion of a diagonal line and disappears as soon as scrolling stops. Sometimes part of the prescrolling display will remain rather than changing with the rest of the screen, usually as a rectangle. I've also started getting only partial display of dialog boxes when editing in Wikipedia, in which only part of the image changes.

The rectangular area not updated is usually near the centre of the screen. The Wikipedia box issue has the opposite issue - the only part of the box that appears is in the same spot that fails to refresh when scrolling.

If I tap on an arrow key, the unrefreshed portion of the screen gets back in sync with the rest.

The issue seems unrelated to website, occurring on Wikipedia, Facebook, and Google.

I disabled the Proton interface within a week of its appearance because it wasted so much vertical screen space, if that's any clue.
